Title: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 09, 2009, 09:47:30 PM
Here's an idea.  Let's write a story by each contributing one sentence at a time.  I'll start:

Boom!  Thunder was crashing overhead.

The lightning struck the dunes and lit up the entire bay.

A scream echoed across the bay, chilling the night air.

It came from the house which brooded on the edge of the cliff.

The house was inhabited by an elderly woman and a cat.

"Dexter, you're going to be the death of me getting underfoot like that," she said as the fat tabby hopped up and wound his tail around her wrist.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 09, 2009, 10:33:44 PM
Dexter meowed and jumped down to run across the floor.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 09, 2009, 10:35:49 PM
He really wasn't concerned with anything, so long as the tuna kept coming.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 09, 2009, 10:38:30 PM
A very dark shadow fell across the room.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 09, 2009, 11:05:48 PM
Dexter hissed at the shadow and ran behind the armchair.

Clouds gathered in the distance as the bark of a dog resounded.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Kath68 on November 09, 2009, 11:12:12 PM
"I find the bark of a dog quite jarring to the senses" remarked Dexter to his astonished owner.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 09, 2009, 11:27:08 PM
The telephone rang and Dexter's owner got up to answer it.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: JoieGirl7 on November 09, 2009, 11:44:02 PM
"Is it for me?" asked Dexter casually.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 10, 2009, 12:00:54 AM
Dexter's owner meowed back that the caller was the owner of a big German shepherd.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 10, 2009, 12:34:12 AM
"Oh, him", Dexter said dismissively. "Tell him I'm sorry I embarrassed him in front of his friends".
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 10, 2009, 10:44:43 AM
The German shepherd growled with rage at Dexter's dismissive statement and began making plans to fight Dexter the next time he showed up out-of-doors.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 10, 2009, 06:11:21 PM
Shep called up his friend Killer and said, "Listen, dude, we have to do something about that Dexter cat."
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 10, 2009, 10:04:27 PM
Killer began to sharpen his claws and teeth in preparation for doing something about Dexter.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 10, 2009, 10:06:52 PM
Dexter knew what Killer and Shep were planning, but couldn't be bothered to worry.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 10, 2009, 11:06:57 PM
Dexter knew Killer and Shep were no match for him, The Kung-Fu Kitty.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 10, 2009, 11:32:17 PM
Still, it was best to be prepared, and so Dexter prepared his claws by shredding the sofa.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 10, 2009, 11:45:18 PM
"Now, Dexter," his elderly owner admonished, "that wasn't nice."

We need a new couch anyway, he thought.

'And it wouldn't kill you to get me a new squeeze toy either' he muttered to himself.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: scotcat on November 11, 2009, 06:25:14 AM
There was a scrabbling at the porch door, causing the old lady to wonder aloud,"Who that could be at this hour?"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 11, 2009, 12:28:38 PM
Dexter picked stuffing out of his claws and said, "I wouldn't open that if I were you ..."
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: NsWife on November 11, 2009, 12:36:11 PM
Curiosity got the better of Dexter's owner and she opened the door just a crack.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Azrail on November 11, 2009, 04:46:30 PM
When she saw who was on the other side of the door, she screamed.

Post by: NsWife on November 11, 2009, 05:01:53 PM
But it was too late.

'Well, that's a lovely welcome!' the woman's mother sneered, as she elbowed her way into the house.

Post by: Scritzy on November 11, 2009, 05:12:43 PM
"Oh, rotten tuna, not that harridan," Dexter complained.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: drebay on November 11, 2009, 05:14:03 PM
"Hmmph" muttered the woman's mother.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 11, 2009, 05:14:58 PM
"Exactly what are you doing here, Rowena?" Dexter inquired, picking the last bit of couch filler from his paw pad.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: pinkunicorn on November 11, 2009, 05:26:53 PM
"If you must know," Rowena sniffed, "I just adopted a new German Shepard and I wanted to show him off to you!"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 11, 2009, 05:42:34 PM
Dexter arched a whiskered eyebrow.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 11, 2009, 07:12:42 PM
The German shepherd came crashing through the door and landed on Dexter's back.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 11, 2009, 09:38:39 PM
Dexter whipped around and dispatched the Shepherd with a tricky but painful claw maneuver.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 11, 2009, 10:20:06 PM
"Nobody messes with The Kung-Fu Kitty,"  Dexter sneered as he stalked around the whimpering, shaking German shepherd.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Azrail on November 11, 2009, 10:25:59 PM
'What has your evil cat done to my poor little dog!' screeched Rowena.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 12, 2009, 12:47:27 AM
"I showed him, again, who's the boss," Dexter answered coolly, examining a broken claw.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: JoanOfArc on November 12, 2009, 07:31:15 AM
Dexter's owner bit back a smile, then offered the german shepherd a band-aid and her mother a drink.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: NsWife on November 12, 2009, 10:03:40 AM
Both offers were soundly rejected.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: drebay on November 12, 2009, 10:13:26 AM
The German Shepard whined, "You didn't tell me that cat was a Kung-fu kitty"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Daffydilly on November 12, 2009, 12:43:16 PM
Dexter merely smiled to himself as he eyeballed the free range skirt hanging from Rowena's waist.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 12, 2009, 12:44:28 PM
Rowena quickly jerked her skirt away from Dexter, snapping at her daughter to control her cat.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 12, 2009, 12:46:21 PM
"Mother, I've told you time and again — you don't control a cat, the cat controls YOU."
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Daffydilly on November 12, 2009, 12:58:04 PM
Dexter chuckled to himself and he slunk behind the sofa, finding the perfect position to wait and pounce when the moment was right.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 12, 2009, 01:25:12 PM
Rowena huffed and said, "You never did have a lick of sense, did you?"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Martienne on November 12, 2009, 01:30:39 PM
That comment reminded Dexter to wash his forelegs, knowing it is important for a kung-fu kitty to keep his killer claws well-groomed after an attack.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 12, 2009, 01:34:07 PM
Dexter's owner hissed at Rowena, "Mother, you've been saying that to me for years, and I'm tired of hearing it!"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 12, 2009, 02:15:42 PM
Having heard enough, Dexter leapt to the back of the sofa and then to Rowena's head, taking her wig with him.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: NsWife on November 12, 2009, 04:04:39 PM
Even her daughter had no idea that what little hair Rowena had left was brittle and like yellow straw.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 12, 2009, 04:06:32 PM
Screaming at the top of her lungs, Rowena clapped her hands over the three pitiful hairs growing out of her scalp, and kicked Dexter in the head.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 12, 2009, 04:12:46 PM
"Take that, you demonic cat,". She shouted gleefully.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 12, 2009, 04:16:42 PM
Dexter hissed, growled, and launched himself at Rowena, all claws and teeth.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: JoieGirl7 on November 12, 2009, 04:27:41 PM
But, suddenly, before Dexter could land a single claw, something very strange happened--Rowena disappeared!
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 12, 2009, 04:43:52 PM
His owner looked at Dexter in surprise and said, "How did you do that — I've been trying to make her disappear for years!"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Shea on November 12, 2009, 05:14:38 PM
"Heck if I know!" said a surprised Dexter, who had never before missed his quarry.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Martienne on November 12, 2009, 05:15:18 PM
Dexter yowled as he attempted to recover well enough to accomplish the stereotypical 4-footed landing.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 12, 2009, 05:19:07 PM
"Always knew she was a witch, but didn't expect that kind of proof," Dexter grumbled.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: drebay on November 12, 2009, 05:23:01 PM
The German Shepard finally broke out of his stunned state, and went after the cat again.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Bellantara on November 12, 2009, 05:26:11 PM
Completely out of patience, Dexter smacked the dog with both sets of front claws, sending him howling for the door.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 12, 2009, 06:13:03 PM
"What is it about dogs and humans," Dexter wondered, "that sets off my creep meter?"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Shea on November 12, 2009, 06:53:56 PM
The next second, he found out.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: JoieGirl7 on November 12, 2009, 07:45:23 PM
Pastor Barley's parlor had always been his sanctuary, a place where the groans and yaws of the old house were more like music to his ears than any reason for alarm.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Martienne on November 12, 2009, 07:51:17 PM
He sat down in his favorite armchair, propped up his feet, and swung his hand around to reach the decanter of cranberry cordial on the side table.

He was a man of the cloth of course, but he was also a philosopher of sorts who liked to sit and contemplate the mysteries of cats, german shepherds and witchy mothers. 
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 12, 2009, 09:18:15 PM
Dexter sat outside the pastor's window, staring as the old man poured a drink.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Martienne on November 12, 2009, 09:31:51 PM
The month since the encounter with the german shepherd and its owner had changed everything about his existence.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 12, 2009, 10:00:43 PM
Dexter meowed, and the old pastor opened his window.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 12, 2009, 10:07:32 PM
"Well, and who are you, now?"  the pastor asked.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: NsWife on November 12, 2009, 10:11:08 PM
Dexter grinned and purred.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 12, 2009, 10:11:46 PM
The pastor brought Dexter inside and poured some milk into a dish for Dexter.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 12, 2009, 10:20:55 PM
Meanwhile, Dexter's owner, Myrtle, was very worried about her poor kitty. 
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: pinkunicorn on November 13, 2009, 09:21:21 AM
So worried, in fact, that she hadn't gotten out of bed in over a week.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Miss Misery on November 13, 2009, 09:34:48 AM
"Dexter?" she called, and he came charging into the room and viciously attacked her bunny slippers.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Daffydilly on November 13, 2009, 10:28:14 AM
Myrtle felt a wave of relief as Dexter pummled the slipper, "So where have you been?"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Martienne on November 13, 2009, 10:38:55 AM
The pastor blinked, shocked to realize that Dexter had suddenly disappeared before his eyes.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: drebay on November 13, 2009, 11:22:09 AM
He then began to pray.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 13, 2009, 11:25:37 AM
A heavenly voice resounded in his mind:  "Thou shalt moderate a peace conference for the animals!"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Daffydilly on November 13, 2009, 11:33:22 AM
Slowly, a shadow darkened his front window and the pastor rose to find an ark sitting on his front lawn, smashing his prize winning dandelions.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: drebay on November 13, 2009, 12:07:09 PM
He couldn't help be upset about his flowers, as he had worked hard on them, no matter that everyone else called them weeds.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: JoanOfArc on November 13, 2009, 01:07:23 PM
But the ark had to be a sign from The Big Man Up Above.

Post by: Scritzy on November 13, 2009, 01:18:44 PM
"You will call Dexter to be head of the Peace Talks from the Feline Kingdom," the Voice boomed.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 13, 2009, 02:22:45 PM
"You will also call Pookie the German Shepherd to represent the canine community,"  the Voice boomed;  "Pookie and Dexter must learn to work together for the sake of peace."
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: drebay on November 13, 2009, 02:59:23 PM
The pastor sighed heavily, knowing that a great task was thrust upon him.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 13, 2009, 04:07:44 PM
The Voice said, "I heard that, Pastor!"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 13, 2009, 06:21:00 PM
The pastor contemplated conversion to another faith.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: NsWife on November 13, 2009, 07:25:15 PM
Then he realized that he needed to get started on his challenge to bring Dexter and Pookie immediately.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: katiescarlett on November 14, 2009, 12:48:04 PM
The pastor called Myrtle and Rowena and asked them to bring Dexter and Pookie to the peace conference.

Post by: Scritzy on November 14, 2009, 01:24:18 PM

Post by: Lisbeth on November 14, 2009, 01:30:42 PM

The pastor's miniature schnauzer barked, then nudged a clod of dirt into the air with her snout.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 14, 2009, 05:33:46 PM
A lightning bolt struck the ground next to the schnauzer.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Miss Misery on November 14, 2009, 06:15:13 PM
The air smelled of electricity and fried schnauzer whiskers.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 14, 2009, 07:48:34 PM
At that moment, Dexter sauntered by lazily, saying, "Looking for me, Pastor?"
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 14, 2009, 07:50:00 PM
Growling and snarling, the schnauzer leaped on Dexter.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Scritzy on November 14, 2009, 07:51:16 PM
Dexter rolled his eyes and said, "Oh, please, you've got to be kidding," and he knocked the Schnauzer sideways with a light touch of his paw.
Title: Re: The Write-A-Story One line at a time game
Post by: Lisbeth on November 14, 2009, 07:52:19 PM
The pastor, having had enough, fired a tranquilizer gun at Dexter.

"Holy begonias, Maggie," the pastor said as he scratched the schnauzer's head, "what are we going to do with Dexter?"

Post by: Scritzy on November 14, 2009, 08:49:36 PM
"I don't know what you're going to do," Maggie said fearfully, as Dexter got back to his feet, "but I'm going to run like he— HECK!"

"You wanted my attention, you've got it. Now, tell me what you want before I slice up that excuse of a dog," Dexter growled.

"Dexter, leave the dogs alone!" all the pet owners shouted.

"Tell the dogs to leave the cats alone!" Dexter shouted in return.

"Yeah, leave us alone!" the cats shouted.

Dexter said, "Are we in accord here? Good."

And on that note, the peace conference was adjourned.

Dexter headed  for home, grumbling about his missed naps and dinner.

Post by: Lisbeth on November 14, 2009, 09:39:32 PM
The pastor spoke back to the Voice, "That's right.  I have human congregants with needs to be seen to."

The dogs and cats in the other cages quickly began to show their support with barks, meows and hurrahs!

Myrtle, Dexters owner, and Roweena, her mother, arrived to claim their two pets from the many left in the cages.

Myrtle, being a good pet owner, flew to embrace her beloved (baldish) Dexter, an act woefully unlike that of the fickle Rowena, who could not decide which animal she wanted for a pet: Alvin, Shep, Maggie or Failbio.

The first thing Rowena did was send out "save the date" cards to all 2785 people in her home and work email address books, followed by mailing photocopied sheets telling where and when her 32 in person, virtual and by-mail showers would be held - with detailed registry information and banking information included.

Failbio immediately hitchhiked on the first vehicle he found going out of town that day.

Rowena immediately called the police, the highway patrol, and the FBI, and demanded they put an APB out on Failbio.

After they finished laughing, the authorities informed Rowena that Failbio had entered a monastery on a remote island.

Rowena was so disheartened that she shaved off her hair.

But when she learned that she could sell her hair at a premium to cancer survivors, she perked up and went Goth.

However, as Rowena had only five hairs on her head, it did not do her much good.

Myrtle, who was now saddled with Roweena's German Shepherd as well as the still sometimes-devious Dexter, turned to competitive Sudoku for stress-relief.

Myrtle, having had a nightcap of vodka, rum and gin, volunteered to play Dexter when he won the last game.

Animal Control accompanied the police to a subsequent visit and after shooting tranquilizers into Dexter took him into custody.

Dexter spent the next five months perfecting his new skills including cloaking himself and stealing fresh fish from the doctor's cafeteria.

We never did finish this story.

A cafeteria worker spotted him and took him home for for his daughter, as they were new in town and she had no friends yet.

Dexter steathily moved himself away from Giselle's family and slunk into the kitchen with a toothy grin on his invisible face.
